System Movie Rating Guidelines

This page is a system resource ― not a page intended for standalone viewing.

See SystemPages for details.

  • Do not rate a movie before watching it in full. Be informed about everything a movie has to offer before rating it.
  • Try to be reasonable. Do not rate a movie with all-tens just because you liked it or with all-zeros just because you did not. Use extreme values sparingly; give them only to movies that truly deserve them.
  • Avoid cross-contamination of categories. In other words, entertainment value and technical quality are separate values, and rate these qualities independently from each other.
  • Do not allow secondary factors unrelated to the movie itself to affect your rating. For example, try not to over-rate a movie just because you like the author.
  • Because of the obvious bias, you should not rate your own movies.
See the voting guidelines for additional notes on rating movies.

Remember that ultimately, ratings are subjective; while they should be expected to be reasonable, everyone has their own standards. Rate in a way that feels right for you - don't overthink on your personal standards.

There are two rating categories: entertainment value and technical quality. Each category can be rated with a value between 0.0 and 10.0, with one decimal of accuracy. The average rating of any one user is a 13:7 weighted average of entertainment and technical quality. The overall rating of a movie, used in computing player ranks, is the average of the users' average ratings.

The first dropdown menu is used to select the integral part of the rating, and the second one the decimal part. If a value larger than 10.0 is selected, it will be truncated to 10.0.

Ratings are optional. If the hyphen symbol is chosen as the integral part, the rating for that category will be removed (and in this case the decimal part will naturally be ignored).
